PKG-AUDIT(8)            FreeBSD System Manager's Manual           PKG-AUDIT(8)

NAME
     pkg audit - Audits installed packages against known vulnerabilities.

SYNOPSIS
     pkg audit [-Fqc] pkg-name

DESCRIPTION
     pkg audit checks installed packages for known vulnerabilities and
     generates reports including references to security advisories.  Its
     intended audience is system administrators and individual users.

     pkg audit uses a database maintained by port committers and the FreeBSD
     security team to check if security advisories for any installed packages
     exist.  Note that a current ports tree (or any local copy of the ports
     tree) is not required for operation.

     The URL that is used to fetch the database can be overridden via the
     VULNXML_SITE config variable or by PORTAUDIT_SITE if you still use the
     compact audit file.  See pkg.conf(5) for more information.

     If you have a vulnerable package installed, you are advised to update or
     deinstall it immediately.

     Supplying a pkg-name will audit only that package.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported by pkg audit:

     -F  Fetch the database before checking.

     -q  Be ``quiet''.  Prints only the requested information without
         displaying many hints.

     -c  Use the prepared audit file instead of vunlxml.  Database is fetched
         according to PORTAUDIT_SITE config variable.

ENVIRONMENT
     The following environment variables affect the execution of pkg audit.
     See pkg.conf(5) for further description.

     PKG_DBDIR

     PORTAUDIT_SITE

     VULNXML_SITE

FILES
     See pkg.conf(5).
